The comedian's family released a statement saying, "Charlie filled our family with love and laughter and there won't be a day that goes by that his presence will not be missed". He died yesterday. Murphy grew up in Brooklyn, and after a short jail sentence as a young man, he joined the Navy, where he served for six years. The comedian bagged his first major role in the 1993 film "CB4" where he portrayed the antagonist, Gusto.

Mr. Murphy's Web series, "Charlie Murphy's Crash Comedy", was seen on Crackle in 2009. Mayer and Chappelle are good friends, and the singer once appeared in a sketch on the Comedy Central series.

John revealed Charlie had coined his favourite phrase, "habitual line-stepper", in his regular True Hollywood Stories segments on Chappelle's Show, while Dave then shared a amusing story about another late star, Prince. In the recurring segment "Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories", he would recount how his brother's fame brought him into the orbit of some of the biggest stars in show business.
